Thursday October 1st

Today my Dad had another dialysis appointment in Newport. Veronica and I got up early and drove him there. After dropping him off at the dialysis center, we went out for a leisurely breakfast and tried to figure out what we were going to do to pass the 4-5 hour wait until my Dad was finished. We decided to drive back to the Sevierville area so that Veronica could return to a discounted craft supply store that they have there in town. On the way back, we stopped along the way so that I could take several photographs.

This place might explain why Dolly still looks good after all of these years. Is it possible that this is where she gets all of her body work done??? Just kidding Dolly!!!!


During this trip, I found myself getting more and more interested in taking photos of old barns and wooden buildings, including houses. The worst shape they were in, the more excited I was in photographing them. Each has so much history and stories to tell. I think that it would be great to take a week or so and just drive the backwood roads in TN, to locate and photograph these treasures. Each one is unique.

I thought that this was a rather cool business advertisement.

TN definitely has more than their fair share of these....flea markets

Tonight we ended up eating at a really fun and interesting place...Applewood Restaurant. Actually there is a complex of buildings that included the family restaurant, another grille restaurant, Christmas Store that was in a big barn, a bakery, an ice cream shop, a winery store that had free wine tasting, a gift shop and a candy store. This whole business was all about apples. Many of the meals in the restaurant had something to do with apples in one form or another. The fritters with apple butter were delicious.

This farmhouse kitchen display was set up in the big red barn that housed a gift shop.
